HOUSTON –- It was cool and wet for most Houstonians out the door early Wednesday as scattered showers moved through town.

KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson says overnight lows dropped into the 50s across Southeast Texas, making it unseasonably chilly outside.

There’s a 40-percent chance for rain today, mainly in the morning hours.

“What a difference a day makes. Yesterday we were tracking the rainfall in inches, but today we’re only talking about a few hundredths to a few tenths of an inch,” said Johnson. “I’m keeping the chance for showers in through about 10 or 11 o’clock, but it’s not until after lunchtime we’ll really start to dry out.”

This afternoon we’ll only top out in the low- to mid-70s under partly cloudy skies

Thursday will be sunnier with daytime highs in the upper-70s. Early-morning lows could set a new record with temps expected to drop into the low-50s overnight.

The nice weather carries over into Friday and Saturday as our daytime temps start to climb back into the 80s.

By Sunday we’ll be approaching 90 degrees once again.

After today, there’s no significant chance for rain in the 7-day forecast.
